Russia will provide shelter to compatriots, which the wicked pursue abroad, said Russian President Vladimir Putin, speaking at the world Congress of Russian compatriots living abroad.

«But, frankly, circumstances may be different, so we will be happy and those who want to come to us on a temporary basis, and those who will decide on the citizenship or permanent residence in Russia. And those whom the wicked persecute, who’s in danger, we will do everything in order to ensure their protection and to grant asylum,» — said Putin.
